Victor French
Those were the days of "My Living Doll" and "Valentine's Day", featuring actors I had never seen before.

I have been in love with Mariette Harley ever since.

I thought William Mulligan was a riot. Years later, he became better known as Bert on "Soap".

I still remember the supporting actor, Victor French, playing the neighbor. A few years later, I was surprised and amused to see French described as a "veteran heavy", and yet had to admit that he was chillingly convincing as a villain. Even later, you may recall him as Michael Landon's friend on "Highway to Heaven."
